It's no secret that Opera isn't doing so well in the era of Chrome dominance. According to a report published by Hindenburg Research, the company's losses in browser revenue have apparently led it to create multiple loan apps with short payment windows and interest rates of ~365-876%, which are in violation of new Play Store rules Google enacted last year.

People have been wondering about the full roster of launch titles featured in Google Play Pass — supposedly, we've got over 350 of them to go through. Here's the thing: Google doesn't make it easy to suss out all of the apps participating in the program, whether through the Play Store or external documentation on associated Google sites. Great.

Welcome to the roundup of the new Android games that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous week or so.

So without further ado, here are the more notable Android games released during the week of January 13th, 2020. Read More
According to a report by Reuters, the European Union Commission is considering a ban on facial recognition technology in public areas for up to five years. The measure is intended to curb privacy violations, give lawmakers time to protect citizens from being cataloged illegally, and oppose the recent push by companies to enhance and improve-upon recognition tech.

Smart home gadgets are raising a lot of questions about privacy, security, and data mining these days. Speakers that could spy on what you're saying, cameras that could upload your videos to unprotected servers, products from no-name companies that could track your usage or location, and worse yet, devices from lazy providers that could introduce a vulnerability to your network, we've seen it all. In that scary context, it's hard to entrust a connected gadget with your front door lock, the very thing that makes you feel safe inside your own home. Every time I've mentioned smart locks online and in real life, I've gotten the same visceral reaction: No, just no. Read More
A few days ago, a new Labs section showed up in Google's search app on Android. In it, users are able to choose which upcoming features they want to enable and which ones they're not interested in. At first, only two options were there: Pinch to zoom on search results and Screenshot editing, sharing, and actions. Now, a third one has joined them: Search Widget Doodles. Read More
I don't think it meant to, but Google has backed itself into a corner with the anticipated Pixel 4a. The previous Pixel 3a was a smash-hit of a phone, doubling the company's phone sales amid some serious troubles. The 3a was so great it even earned our 2019 Smartphone of the Year accolade over the company's "flagship" Pixel 4 series. But based on what we've heard so far, I think the upcoming Pixel 4a could be a disaster for Google. Read More
Android 10 has already arrived on some phones and tablets, including Samsung's Galaxy S/Note series, Google Pixel devices, OnePlus phones, and more. As with previous big Android updates, we'll continue to see a trickle to more models over the coming months.
Many of Android 10's most important changes are under the hood, or aren't as apparent as a full-on interface redesign, so you'd be forgiven for not noticing every new feature on your own. That's why we're going over the most important features here, and how they can make your smartphone or tablet better than ever. Read More
Google has no shortage of irons in the fire when it comes to e-commerce. The company has consistently added new retail partners to its Shopping (formerly Google Express) app and just acquired a company whose technology allows local businesses to display their inventories with Google search directly. Now, Google has announced upcoming changes that will enable users to browse and compare clothes from multiple retailers with a single Google search. Read More
Yahoo was an internet heavyweight during the early years of the internet—before Google, of course. Today, Yahoo is a shell of its former self as a subsidiary of Verizon with no real search product of its own. It's trying to build one, though. The company's new One Search is available on the web and via an Android app. It's just Bing with some added features, but Yahoo promises it's really secure. Read More
